STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Ends Up Geometry Wasn’t A Total Waste of Time

Geometry is no longer reserved for the classroom. This season stripes, checks, diamonds and zebra print cover the runway, just as the snow covers our front lawns. From Valentino to Yves Saint Laurent, black and white geometric patterns stole the show for fall and winter 2015 to 2016 ready-to-wear collections. Put that year of high school geometry to work and add this new piece of street style to your wardrobe.

You don’t have to go full on Twiggy via 1967 to enjoy the season’s geometric trend. This Fashionista’s black and white houndstooth skirt is a great example of subtle, yet à la mode. She pairs the skirt with basic black tights and flat booties, perfect for rushing to class. To balance the craziness happening below her waist, she complements her skirt with a simple black sweater and white collared shirt.

Her outfit is cute, but also comfortable. She wears a gray wool coat and striped scarf to keep warm as the temperature drops. Walking to class becomes a bit more bearable when you have a warm fuzzy coat to wear. Another essential piece of this outfit is her silver watch. It is not only a popular accessory, but a practical one as well. Wearing a watch is an easy way to check the time during class when your professor has a sore spot for electronic devices.

This Fashionista’s outfit is great for on the way to class, but it can also work for a date night. Her red lip is a fun, flirty addition to a black and white ensemble.
